Savannah

Georgia

Description

Savannah is quite the unique city know for being one of the most southern styled and hospitable towns. The town also is architecturally known for their squared parks in the middle of residential and commercial intersection areas, 22 of them to be exact, and has this almost Barcelona feeling towards it, appreciating nature within a developing city. Downtown Savannah is on the far eastern side of the state and rides along the Savannah River which connects directly to the Atlantic Ocean. 

The LGBTQ area is within the cute downtown area where many of the gay bars located. The Historic Downtown is the place to be with all the restaurants, bars, and places to go. Savannah's Historic District also has an open container law, meaning you can walk the streets with an adult beverage in a plastic cup and enjoy the downtown. This is only recognized in a few cities, such as New Orleans, so enjoy the opportunity to do so! 

They have wonderful bars to check out and not to mention, one of the most entertaining bars ever, a duel piano bar! As always, check out the Directory for all the places to visit!

Did we mention that Fort Stewart, an army base, was only 45 minutes away and tends to have US soldiers in and out often?!

Airport

Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV). Catch the most cost-effective ride into town at the CAT bus stop in front of the terminal on the lower level. The 100X Airport Express costs just $5 one-way ($8 roundtrip) and provides service between the airport and the Joe Murray Rivers, Jr. Intermodal Transit Center in downtown Savannah, seven days a week.

Otherwise, the larger Jacksonville Regional (JAX) is 1.5 hours south. Only accessible by car.

Public Transportation

The DOT is a free service to help visitors and residents get around downtown Savannah. Included in the system are shuttles serving 24 stops in the Historic District and the Savannah Belles Ferry. Use the free shuttle from 7am to 12am.
